MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt wristwatch is a true work of art
The renowned watchmaker, Maximilian Büsser & Friends (MB&F), who brought us the Horological Machine N°1, Horological Machine N°2 and the Horological Machine N°3, has now come up with the awe-inspiring MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt wristwatch. Similar to traditional wristwatches, the Horological Machine No4 Thunderbolt has a hand for the hours, another for the minutes and a power reserve indicator. But, they say it’s not just another traditional watch and we agree completely. The aviation-inspired looks of the HM4 Thunderbird are sure to keep you spellbound. An upshot of three long years of development, the Thunderbolt’s engine boasts 50 jewels and 300-plus components that were made purposely for this anarchistic caliber.
Maximilian Büsser’s long passion for assembling model plane kits is clearly noticeable from the aerodynamic shape of the titanium and sapphire envelope. Attention has been paid to every single detail. While the left cylinder tells you the power left in its kinetic charger, the right one tells you the time in a very simple way. The complexity of the watch has been carefully engineered for functional simplicity. The MB&F Horological Machine N°4 Thunderbolt comes for a cool $158,000.
